[ARCHIVED] Downtown Area Sidewalk Repair

Sidewalk Repair

Everyone uses sidewalks at some point, whether walking is their primary mode of transportation or not: Drivers walk on them to and from their cars, transit riders travel on them to their stops and stations, cyclists lock up their bikes and walk to their destination on them.


In partnership with the Downtown Community Benefit District, the City is initiating a pilot program designed to improve walkability and access ability in high use pedestrian areas such as the downtown core and railroad square. The program will survey and map minor sidewalk lifts under two-inches in height, then remove the lift using edge-to-edge saw-cutting technology leaving a tapered, textured finish. Once a raised sidewalk within the correct parameters is identified, saw-cutting typically takes 20-30 minutes to complete. Pedestrian traffic may be temporarily re-routed during repairs. Work will be conducted Monday – Friday, 7AM-3PM with survey inspections anticipated to begin in early October with repair work to follow.

When the pilot program is proven successful and funding remains available, additional high-density pedestrian areas of the City may receive similar minor sidewalk repairs.

Maintaining and replacing sidewalks is typically the responsibility of the adjacent property owner. However, the city will currently repair minor sidewalk lifts by applying an asphalt patch; to report a raised sidewalk please call 707-543-3881.
